    There’s quite some food for thought there. I’ll be thinking 🙂 As far as ‘those’ reviewers are concerned however I do have a theory. I’ve come to the conclusion that they must enjoy posting negative reviews more than they dislike reading a book they know they’re going to dislike. Seems like a horrid way to live your life to me, but I can’t think of any other explanation.

    I can’t even tell you how many reviews I’ve had that begin with “I’m not really a fan of BDSM, but I read this book anyway….” And I am as perplexed by that as you.

    However, I think you must share some DNA with my absolute favourite teacher ever, Mr. B., who read The Hobbit out loud to our sixth grade class way back when. I spent the summer between grade six and grade seven reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy and never looked back. I think of Mr. B. often and am forever grateful for that year of awakening in his class.
